Granada

Last week we got a chance to visit the lovely town of Granada. It’s old, real old. Like was founded in 1524 old. And it is right along Lake Nicaragua, which is supposed to be gorgeous. We were not traveling alone, so we didn’t get to decide how long we stayed and what did on this trip-so we didn’t get to see the lake this time. But we got to see a bit of this very old incredible city, and can’t wait to go back and explore more. It’s pretty far from us, about 3 hours or so. But Living Water has one of their programs running right next to the city, so we’ll be there more for sure. In addition, while we were out there, we got to meet some more LWI staff too. Jorge and his crew that have been working in the area for years-drilling and hosting teams. He was super nice, and had a sweet family. Four kids too, which meant he has some good contacts for us, knows some good doctors, and was so willing to help us figure things out being so new the country. We have been so thankful for the kindness that all the LWI staff has shown us along the way. It has made being in a new and foreign place so much easier-having co-workers and friends instantly! In fact, did I mention that the new place we are living in is just a few blocks from another LWI house? A house that they do pump repair out of, some teams, and the family that lives there is also so sweet. Hiro’s even taken us around town a few times, pointing us to the grocery stores, yummy restaurants, and the local markets too. Oh how thankful we are for instant connections and welcoming open arms!!

Here are some photos of Granada:

It's a pretty touristy place, complete with old carriage rides!

I could make something up and tell you that's what this building is-but I really don't have a clue. We didn't go inside, just walked past it! But isn't it pretty??

These were the menus at a yummy restaurant Stu took us to. It was so fun! The food was great too-Brittany and I shared steak and a stuffed chicken dish. Yum.

It was open air seating, with a pretty courtyard in the center-very common around here I'm noticing.

Another old and beautiful building.
